4 Things To Know About Adding A Keypad To An Existing Garage Door

If you’ve had to get into your garage or had multiple family members trying to get in there, then you know that it’s a process to get in the garage. But with the latest technological advancements, entering a garage has gotten a lot easier and more streamlined. In this article, we answer some of the most common questions that we get about garage door openers, especially keypads. Keep reading if you’re interested in finding out more about this latest advancement in garage door openers. 

What is a keypad garage door opener?

A keypad garage door opener is a type of device that is installed outside your garage door. With this device, you select a series of numbers as a “key” to opening your garage door. Once you enter this key, your door will open up. The device that’s installed is a type of lock that keeps your garage door closed at all times. That means that keypad garage door openers offer more security than other types of openers. A keypad is also simple to install as we will show you later in this article.

What are the benefits of keypad garage door openers?

There are many benefits to keypad garage door openers. For one, instead of carrying around a bunch of keys or making duplicate keys for each member of your family, you and your household would have one set of “keys.” The private digits that you choose would function as a key and each person in your family would just need to keep this key in hand. That means that you save you and your household money on making duplicate keys for the garage. You also save time so that you’re not trying to find your keys if they’re lost. 

Another benefit of garage door keypads as we mentioned is that it’s difficult to get locked out since you either memorize the code to enter the garage or have it written down somewhere. So, unlike a physical key, you wouldn’t need to carry it everywhere. You also wouldn’t need to worry about not being able to find it. In addition to this, the key would never really get “lost.” 

Having a garage door keypad adds to the value of your home since you’re incorporating the latest technology. Keeping up with the latest advancements means that you care about your home and have knowledge of the latest  trends. 

The keypad should also last a long time (at least 10-15 years). That means that you’re saving yourself a lot of money.

Should I have a professional install it?

You can either install it yourself, as we mentioned before, or you can have a professional come to your home and install it for you. Both ways, you have options to consider when it comes to installing the garage door keypad. If it’s convenience and accuracy that matters to you, then you should consider a professional to install the keypad for you.
